Preview: Outside Oslo by Jessica Jones

Today brought the good news that Jessica Jones (who designed two collections, Amusement Park and Modern Flora, for J Caroline Designs a couple years back) is coming out with a new fabric collection, called Outside Oslo. And more good news, we have a new small fabric manufacturer on the scene! Outside Oslo will be produced by The Needle Shop, a fabric shop and sewing school in Chicago (where Jessica lives).

Outside Oslo is available for wholesale pre-order now and is expected to be available retail in May. There are six prints in two colorways, Dawn and Dusk, printed on 54″ wide home dec weight cotton canvas. Love!

No word on whether The Needle Shop has grand plans for future collections — judging from this collection I’d be really excited to see what else they might have in store — but I’m content to savor this news for the time being!
